Chichester City won the Sussex County Women's Cup for the first time in their history when they defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 3-0 in the Final at Lancing.
With a tactical session this week the players went into this game knowing the game plan that manager Matt Wright wanted them to play and they took to the field ready to make club history. In foggy conditions it looked at times that the game might be called off before it started but with the record amount of fans (381) flooding through the gates and visibility on the pitch matching the rules, the game started.
Chichester started with two players in Kally Ambler and Lauren Cheshire up front who were willing runners and closed down the Brighton defence regularly to give them no time on the ball. An early free kick was awarded to Chichester and Hollie Wride stepped up to find the roof of the net from outside the area giving the South West Combination side the lead
Chichester continued to work hard in midfield with veteran Kirsty Willett in inspirational form and they ensured that they kept their lead going into the break.
Chichester changed formation for the start of the second half when they packed out midfield and left one striker up top, meaning that Brighton had a lot of possession but Emma Alexandre and Taylor McGlashan were superb at the back together for the Chichester defence.
The introduction of Abbey Shrubb as a second half substitute proved to be a significant moment in the match. With Brighton committed to attack in order to get themselves back in the game, Chichester always looked dangerous on the counter attack and with fifteen minutes left, Shrubb scored with a great solo effort to double her side's lead.
Shrubb was not finished there and she put the result beyond doubt in the dying minutes to seal a memorable win for Chichester.
